Being the paint freak that I am, I have more paint chips than god. There are a gazillion other uses for paint chips, but this one was really fun! Here's what we did:
We grabbed one paint chip for each basic color- reds, oranges, yellows, greens, blues, purples, blacks, browns, whites.
After they picked their colors, I told them we were going to take a "Color Walk." It's Nature Walk meets I Spy- while you explore nature you look for colors that might match your paint chips. The kids were so excited!
The whole family had fun really using our eyes to find our colors. We take nature walks in the trails around our house often, but we don't usually see anything spectacular. This activity made us realize that there's plenty to see for those who look!
